A meditation on childhood and loss, it is also a love story. Listen to a short reading here. The book was illustrated by Jillian Tamaki. Jerzak currently teaches English Philology at Academia Pomeraniensis in Poland. She will read from the book on 28 April from 12:15 to 2 pm at Congregation Beth El in Potsdam, New York.
